A popular duck hunting rendezvous point, Lansing Lane Access continues to get smaller as the Boise River eats away at the site's exposed riverbank. Idaho Fish and Game is working with Flood Control District #10 to stabilize and restore the bank.
The first phase of the project involves the deposition of 200 to 250 cubic yards of large rock at the Lansing Lane Access parking area by Fish and Game staff. In early 2014, Flood Control District #10 will be using the material to construct several rock barbs in the Boise River to deflect water away from the eroding riverbank. Additional bank reconstruction work will also be done.
Construction is expected to take two weeks and will be conducted prior to spring run-off. The site will be closed to public access during construction. Additional information concerning construction can be found on Flood Control District #10's website at www.boiseriver.org.
